Although there is an abundance of art throughout the year, the winter months in South Florida present a vast assortment of shows and exhibitions that easily seem to delight one and all.

In January & February of each year, art aficionados can expect to sample Art Palm Beach, Beaux Arts, The Coconut Grove Art Festival, Art Key Biscayne, Las Olas Art Festival and a host of others.  We attended the Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary (PBM+C) on a stormy weekend and trust me, it was worth the drive there.

The PBM+C show is presented by Art Miami and hosted by the City of West Palm Beach. The Fair’s refined ambiance welcomes seasoned collectors as well as budding art enthusiasts.

Amongst the 50 plus galleries presenting their sculptures and paintings many hailed in from faraway places such as France, England, Germany, Japan and a varied selection of Latin countries. Local galleries included Cernuda Arte, Lelia Mordoch Gallery and Wynwood Art Gallery.

PBM+C is on view from January 11-15.  Visit www.ARTPBFAIR.COM  for ticket information and hours.
